MONROVIA, Jan 7 (LINA) - The Liberia National Fire Service (LNFS) and the United States-based Fire Rescue Alliance (FRA) have a signed a five-year partnership agreement under which the FRA will help build the capacity of the LNFS.

Col. Jassah Gayah, LNFS Director of Public Affairs, told the Liberian News Agency Tuesday that the agreement was signed between FRA and LNFS during a visit to Liberia by the Alliance in November last year.

During that visit, the FRA donated three fire engines, and an assortment of firefighting equipment and materials.

The FRA also trained a number of Liberian firemen in techniques of tackling various forms of fire.

Col. Garyah confirmed that most of the 15 political sub-divisions lack fire-fighting equipment, and that in some instances, firemen were aided by residents using buckets to tackle fire outbreaks.

She said, however, if the public would install fire extinguishers at their various homes, offices and vehicles, many fire incidents will the curbed before they reach disastrous proportion.
